Paid in cash Upon his return to Berlin, Tintin leads the police to arrest a dangerous Bolshevik and receives a reward of twenty thousand Marks for his capture. After deciding to go back to Russia, Tintin loses no time in buying a powerful sports car, setting out at high speed in the driving rain, and smashing through a level crossing at the same time as the train for Brussels comes thundering along. This racing car which Tintin bought appears to have been inspired by various 1920’s sports cars of which Hergé was aware. A major player among these would have been the Amilcar CGS.
